If you need a quick boost, this 15-minute bodyweight workout will help you improve posture using a series of extension-based isometric exercises with modifications given for anyone who has a hard time moving this way.
You will not need any equipment for this workout, although a blanket under the hips can help ease lower back discomfort when sitting on the floor. When face down, some find it difficult to raise the torso off the ground due to anatomical changes in the spine. I will show you how a blanket under the pelvis can actually improve range of motion in the exercise and help ease tension in the lower back.
Think of this as a preparation to exercise and a solution to prolonged hours of sitting! Remember that you are only as good as your core. When these muscles are are weak, it is difficult to transfer force from the limbs to the core and the core out to the limbs. The foundation of our movement and strength lies in the trunk and spine.
This routine can be done anywhere, anytime. It can reduce fatigue after exercise, as a prevention from injury, and to help manage your muscle strength. This can also be used as a warm-up or as a workout in itself. Isometrics are the precursor to adding any load and challenge to our body.
